Rain shadow over swamp?

Lots of rain on the east coast today,

But once again The Big Cypress stayed dry.

The above calendar shows a history of swamp surface dryness, from 1992 to present.  The warmer and larger the data point, the dryer the swamp. As of this week the swamp dropped into what I call extreme drought.  

The result: Soil saturation index drops into the red.

That's when even cypress dome centers and marshes go dry.

Next question: How long will it last?
